1/4 cup Channa dal
5 dry Red chillies
Salt to taste
Walnut-sized ball of tamarind
1 tsp Mustard seeds

Heat a griddle till it is very hot, on a medium flame. Roast the peanuts,channa dal and dry red chillies (stirring frequently) on this griddle till they give off a gentle cooked aroma.
Allow to cool completely and then grind the peanuts,channa dal,tamarind and chillies to a coarse powder.
Add salt to taste.
Add enough water to coarse powder and grind to get a thick and smooth paste.
Heat oil in pan and season mustard seeds and curry leaf. Add it to chutney.
